About Ronnie

I am a UX Designer with 10 years of experience in the digital arts. I started my career in the VFX industry.   Later, in 2015 I developed an interest in startup and Design Thinking, which grew into a passion. This led me to discover the User Experience and Human-Centered Design

Rather than just chasing digital trends, I am a proponent of User-Centric design, validate ideas with data and research. I design things to solve human problems.

This website is where I showcase some of my work and write about life as a designer, UX professional, and amateur photographer.

Biography

I have a BA in Art History from Silapakorn university, Thailand and I also have Digital Arts/Animation/Fine Arts certificates from the USA. I came to the USA in pursuit Hollywood Dream. I used to work as a movie compositor at Marvel. I dreamed high and I fell hard. 😅 I was one of the victims of IT outsourcing. After 10 years in the hectic Visual Effects industry in Los Angeles, I readjusted my skill set to match the emergence of startups. wanted a career in which I could merge all of my skills and experience into one purpose. I discovered Design Thinking classes.

These Design Thinking classes introduced me to the value of User Experience. With practice in UX, I could implement my creative skills to influence human behavior and reduce frustrations with designs.

In response to a family emergency in Dec 2019, I relocated to Gainesville, Florida.
Now I’m a UX Designer at UFIT and attend grad school at UF.

I go by Ronnie.

Why UX?

I am always curious about how things work and why they work this way. I want to better understand human behavior.

UX practice is a mindset of solving problem in life.

What is my idea of collaboration?

Learn from each other, be able to think better as a team.

When the Avengers Assembled, not everyone in the team had to be as smart as Start or as strong as Hulk. But you better have a unique power to make yourself useful to the team.

I bring something new.

I communicate and listen

I set clear goals and objectives

I assist and learn to compromise.

Hey, I seem pretty cool, right?

Let’s solve some problems.
